Moderating Utopia


With transparent sadness, tomorrow I leave rainy Wales behind for sunny Lisbon, guest of the British Council and Epica – The Portuguese Association for the Fantastic in the Arts.

I shall be delivering a series of guest lectures as part of Lisbon’s Forum Fantastico 2005, including the science and culture of astrobiology; innovation in science and the arts when it comes to the CASE curriculum ; and chairing a panel debate on technological utopias and dystopias.

Forum Fantastico 2005 is otherwise a series of talks, debates, releases, signings and other parallel initiatives that address the many sides of the fantastic.

Events will take place from November 10 through 13, 2005 at the Orlando Ribeiro Municipal Library in Lisbon, Portugal.

The prime goal of Forum Fantastico 2005 is to introduce the public to the work of Portuguese and foreign authors, artists and academics in the field of the fantastic, as well as to promote and enrich the study and discussion of the fantastic in Portugal.

Fantastic Forum 2005 is organized by Rogerio Ribeiro, Safaa Dib, and Epica , and sponsored by several institutions, publishers and other companies.
